English football fans are predicted to drink 6.8 million pounds in the Euro 2020 semi-final against Denmark.
The British Beer and Pub Association (PPPA) estimates it buys 50,000 pounds a minute in two hours.
Tens of millions of pounds can be purchased by the end of the day as wet supporters fill out pre- and post-game ads.
Whatever the outcome of Wednesday’s game, it will be a huge success for the hospitality industry, which is set to make a fortune.
On average, it costs 69 3.69 per pint in the UK (44 4.44 in London), based on figures from 2019 on the BigHospitality specialty store analysis.
This means beer estates, hotels, bars and other places in the UK can expect to receive around $ 25 million between 8pm and 10pm.
That number would be even higher if there were no corona virus controls.
This comes after Boris Johnson announced that the UK would soon repeal all rules – including wearing masks and social distance.
The Prime Minister said: “If we are not able to reopen our company in the next few weeks, when we are helped by the arrival of summer and school holidays, we should ask:“ When can we get back to normal? ”.
“For those of us who say it’s not too late, we need to reopen in the winter when there is a benefit to the virus throughout this year or not.”
PPPA Managing Director Emma McLaren said today: “With the support of English fans, we hope the ads will sell 6.8 million pounds during the semi-finals.

If the Euro 2020 final goes overtime, pubs will be able to stay open longer on Sundays to avoid being sent off (photo: PA).
“If the team continues to win, a final at Wembley awaits them, which will be a huge boost for our pubs and the nation.”
“After a long wait, the pubs we want should be unrestricted from July 19. Our pubs can only recover when the restrictions are lifted, but to do that, they need investment from the government to build better.”
Downing Street has approved plans to legally open pubs on Sunday nights, so football fans can continue to watch if the Euro 2020 final is extended.
Mr Johnson urged the country to support the three Lions “enthusiastically, but responsibly”.
